Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five
The Message vs Jungle Boogie
{Intro: Kool & The Gang and Melle Mel}
Get down, get down
G-get down, get down
Get down, get down
G-get down, get down
(Don't push me) Get down, get down
G-get down, get down
(Don't push me, cause I'm-) Get down, get down
Get down, get down

[Chorus: Melle Mel]
Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my head
Ah-huh-huh-huh-huh
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I-
Keep from going under
It's like a jungle sometimеs
It makes me wonder how I keep from going undеr

[Verse 1: Melle Mel and Kool & The Gang]
Broken gla** everywhere
People oooh on the stairs, you know they just don't care
I can't take the smell, can't take the noise
Got no money to move out, I guess I got no choice
Rats in the front room, roaches in the back
Junkies in the alley with a baseball bat
I tried to get away, but I couldn't get far
'Cause a man with a tow truck repossessed
My
Car
[Chorus: Melle Mel]
Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my he~
Ah-huh-huh-huh-huh
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from going under
Keep from going under
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I
Keep from going
Keep from going
Keep from going under

[Verse 2: Duke Bootee]
My brother's doing bad, stole my mother's TV
Says she watches too much, it's just not healthy
All My Children in the daytime, Dallas at night
Can't even see the game or the Sugar Ray fight
Can't even see the game or the Sugar Ray fight
The bill collectors, they ring my phone
And scare my wife when I'm not home
Got a bum education, double-digit inflation
Can't take the train to the job, there's a strike at the station

[Chorus: Melle Mel]
Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose my he~
Ah-huh-huh-huh-huh
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I
Keep from going under
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I
Keep from going
Keep from-Keep from-Keep from going under
{Bridge: Kool & The Gang and Melle Mel}
Jungle Boogie
(Well ya get down)
It's like a jungle sometimes
Jungle Boogie
(Get the boogie)
It makes me wonder how I keep from going under
Jungle Boogie
(Well ya get down)
It's like a jungle sometimes
Jungle Boogie
(Get the boogie)
It makes me wonder how I keep from going under
We down with Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five!

[Chorus: Melle Mel]
Don't push me 'cause I'm close to the edge
I'm trying not to lose-lose-lose my head
Ah-huh-huh-huh-huh
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from going under
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I
Keep from going
Keep from-Keep from-Keep from going under
[Outro: Melle Mel]
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I
Keep from going under
It's like a jungle sometimes
It makes me wonder how I keep from going under
